Zipline
A zip-line (also known as a flying fox, foefie slide, zip wire, aerial runway, aerial ropeslide or tyrolean crossing consists of a pulley suspended on a cable mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable, usually made of stainless steel, by holding on or attaching to the freely moving pulley. Zip-lines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment. They may be short and low, intended for childâ€TMs play and found on some playgrounds. Longer and higher rides are often used as a means of accessing remote areas, such as a rainforest canopy. Zip-line tours are becoming popular vacation activities, found at outdoor adventure camps or upscale resorts, where they may be an element on a larger challenge or ropes course.

Setting up your Zipline is simple and just takes a few minutes. Carefully following the instructions as a beginner is very important.

Zipline was easy to set up.

Hooked between two trees in the backyard and actually extended it to about 125ft without issue.

After researching the other zip line kits at Amazon and elsewhere, I figured the Slackers 90' Zipline Hawk was the best value. Unlike some of the most popular ones at Amazon, especially the Spring Swings Deluxe, this one does not have any plastic parts on the pulley system, so it seems much more durable. With two trees at either end, this is extremely easy to install and then adjust to the right tension. You can make it as fast as you need, depending on the heights of the users. You don't need any more equipment than basic wrenches. Everything else is in the box. I am surprised that there are no other reviews of this kit, but I hope this encourages some to consider this product. My children (ages 4, 6 and 10) are loving it, and it can also hold an adult up to 250 lbs. I will update this review if any issues come up with this product, since we've only been using this for three weeks.

I'm a 250lb guy and I could ride this thing with no problem. We bought the 90ft version and that is a very, very long zip line. There are 2 challenges with line this long: angle and tension. We had to build a stand on the starting end to get it up to about 15 ft, as you want the stop to be about 6 ft off the ground. I found the most effective way to tension cable was to use a come along (pulley ratchet tension) against another anchor point. It would be very hard to install this cable without a mechanical tension assist. All of this only took one hour.. but recommend you find a friend to help. Kids just love it.. I do too. very solid product.

First, I'll say that this kit is simple to use (although manually a little challenging to install). The directions are clear and the hand trolley part of the zipline is well made. My brother has one for his kids that was made by another manufacturer, and he was impressed by the quality and sturdiness of this product. The directions in the box are clear (especially the table helping figure distance between trees, height of riders and height you need to mount the cable - pay attention to this or you'll have a zipline that's too fast or droopy).

If you have very large trees, you may need to purchase an additional piece (which we did). We have a tree with a 95" circumference and another with 120" and 50" of zipline space between them, I purchased the 90 foot cable kit because I thought both ends of the cables were to wrap around the tree. Instead, the kit comes with a 5 foot sling that is to go around the tree at the start of the course (a u-bolt links the ends of this sling and then connects to the end of the cable that runs to the other tree. Because our start tree is so big, I had to go to home depot and buy a 9' cable to act as our sling ($19). This worked well, but because of the length of cable I bought, there's a lot pooled up at the end of the course.

I will say that there are several you tube videos on how to make your own zipline, and after perusing the aisle at home depot for this extender cable, I saw all of the supplies there that come in this kit - well, everything but the really nice hand trolley. I didn't price the components, though, so don't know if you'd actually save money. For a not-so-handy family like us, this kit was perfect (except for the delay in getting the bigger sling) and the kids are having a blast.

Really easy to put up. Five star because I delegated the installation to my 16 year old and he completed it in 30 minutes with no issue.

Slackers should offer a tightening kit though. Even for a short run, its hard to get the line tight.

This product is great for my 7 and 10 year olds.

I wanted to add a seat to the trolley. So I put a 1/4 inch bolt and nut (with locktite) through the large diameter hole in the trolley. And then added a poly-pro rope with pre made knots that was also purchased from Amazon. To the rope I added a homemade wooden seat. Kids love it!

Make sure ground is clear of obstacles! This zip line was easy to install, it took about an hour... We added wooden slats to protect both trees' bark, a rope pulley to the traveller and a small step ladder as the start was about ten feet off the ground due to the slope of the yard. Great fun for the entire neighbourhood.

Was easy to install (although with an 85' span, a "come-along" would have been helpful). The grandkids, and lots of their friends, seem to love it. Therefore, have to conclude that it is successful. Our installation has the start at 14' and the termination at 8'. The users are mostly ages 11 to 14. In summary, it is everything advertised.

The included "sling" cable will only work for smaller trees. If the circumference of the starter tree is more than about 45'', the included cable will not work. No where in any product description anywhere does it provide this warning. I never got to try it out. 2 stars because its looks fun.

so I always wanted a zipline, bought this kit because it was the only one that had metal wheels. Others have plastic which breaks over time. Can hold up to 200lbs, gets rained on and still works fine. Has been in operations for 7 months now, no problems to report
